Henry, Michael; Marrs, Diana
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, Jul 21-24, 2015)
Student performance in a Connectivist Massive Open Online Course (cMOOC), featuring daily synchronous web meetings was analyzed to explore the possibility of increased participant motivation and confidence. Participant survey data and course performance data were compiled, analyzed, and interpreted for 1256 individuals who completed a pre-course survey and 54 selected individuals who completed the post-course survey and met the sample criteria. This qualitative study adds to the overall understanding of social learning in a blended cMOOC environment. Results suggest that Daily Online Task-based Social (DOTS) Learning in large-scale web meetings may increase an individual's language learning confidence and personal motivation.
